Divorce Lawyers

The breakdown of marriage is listed as one of the most stressful things that we can experience in life. Our Family Lawyers have many years of experience between them to ensure that you receive appropriate advice and practical support during this difficult time, no matter what your situation. This will include advice on how to obtain a divorce, the timescale and cost and implications for financial arrangements and also any children’s arrangements.

What is a divorce procedure?

Divorce is the legal process that brings a marriage to an end and this process is dealt with in the family Court.

We are conscious of the fact that you may be concerned about the cost of legal advice, so here at Gotelee Solicitors we can offer you a fixed fee first meeting to hear about your situation and give you advice on solutions.

The cost is £200 plus VAT.

Provided you have been married for over a year, in order to obtain a divorce you now only need to state that the marriage has irretrievably broken down.

Financial Settlement in divorce

One of the major concerns that people have when going through a divorce or separation is surrounding their finances. Our Family Lawyers are experienced in this to give you the best advice and achieve the best outcome based on your situation. To find out more about this, visit our dedicated financial settlement in divorce page.

Timescale and costs getting divorced

The quickest timescale for obtaining a divorce is between 7-8 months and this is because there is a 20 week Court imposed block followed by a further six week wait before applying for the final order. We are able to provide you with a quote for a fixed cost of the divorce and to provide you with a separate costs estimate for dealing with any financial settlement or children issues.

We offer an initial fixed fee meeting which many of our clients find useful to gather further information about the divorce process, the particular issues of your case and an initial view on likely outcomes.

How can our divorce lawyers help you?

We have an experienced, knowledgeable family law team who will be able to help you through this difficult time. To make a initial fixed fee appointment call 01473 211 121 or fill in our enquiry form.

What others say

The Legal 500 which is recognised globally as the definitive guide for those seeking expert legal advice quoted from some our clients to say:

‘The first thing would be their kindness and willingness to listen to you about every detail of your situation. Their strengths and capabilities are endless, whatever angle you come at they point you in the right direction. Other firms just seem to have a quick fix attitude but Gotelee Solicitors really makes you feel part of their family. Every aspect of communication from emails to billing is easy and very understanding. I would not even think about going anywhere else as they work with you in every possible way to achieve the right result.’

‘The Family department were excellent, the communication was first class always keeping me up to date with proceedings. Very efficient and professional.’
